The Pros:Uses a large number of LEDs for quick reference to specific parts of the board's activity. Full POST error status can be decoded from LEDs. Complete and in-depth user manual.
The Cons:Motherboard is picky about which types of memory it will accept - even the approved list has errors. Memory speeds don't get much past 1066Mhz, despite advertising saying it goes much faster.
